Italy sell out final two matches
Italy captain Marco Bortolami
Bortolami has urged his team to stay focused despite the hype
Italy's historic win over Scotland at Murrayfield has resulted in a rush for tickets for the Azzurri's final two games of this year's RBS Six Nations.

Rome's Stadio Flaminio has sold out for the matches against Wales (10 March) and Ireland (17 March).

But Italy captain Marco Bortolami has warned his side to keep their feet on the ground after their first away win.

"We are happy after Scotland but must come back to reality and keep our focus for Wales," said the Gloucester lock.

"I'm sure the Welsh are coming to Italy with the clear intention to grab their first victory in the Six Nations.

"They played a good game against France and, to be honest, they where a bit unlucky.

"I'm sure it will be a difficult game to win, but we need to win this game because our first away win confirmed we could do it.

"Our fans are waiting for another memorable day and we are going to do everything possible to keep them happy."

Italy have never won two matches in the Six Nations.
